Pattern Details

The Baby Bird Blanket is a textured blanket designed to meet the donation requirements for Knots of Love, a nonprofit organization that distributes hats to people suffering from traumatic hair loss and blankets to infants in neonatal intensive care units. This blanket uses the the same simple stitch pattern from the Hummingbird Hat along with a traveling stitch pattern for added texture. This is part of a Knit-a-Long sponsored by Lion Brand. This pattern is available for FREE on my blog. The free version is supported by advertising on my website. The downloadable PDF for sale on Craftsy includes the full pattern in one printable file without advertisements. This PDF is available to US buyers only due to EU VAT MOSS. I can set up an Etsy listing for you if you live outside of the US. Thank you for your understanding.
